|History of Newport RFC|
Bonymaen,   23 February 2002
Played at Morfa Stadium Swansea Newport moved into the last 8 without ever really getting into top gear. The game was disjointed mainly due to referee Keri Evans being too lenient with Bonymaen?s constant infringing around rucks and mauls. Newport scored after 29 minutes with Mostyn diving over. Davies then reduced the deficit after 32 minutes but Brew and Lewis added tries before HT. It took Newport until the 60th minute to score their 4th try through Tonu?u and then his replacement Burn set up Mostyn for his second try. Young replaced Richards and crossed for the 6th try and in the final minute Forster capped a fine display breaking away for a try converted by Strange to the delight of a large Newport support shivering in the biting wind.
